Although this recession has been tough on a Hot Mama’s wallet, that’s no reason to skip holiday gift giving. Actually, it’s a fine time for more thoughtful and unique presents. So when I discovered Lagelle hand-knitted hats and scarves, I had to share. Â Every Lagelle item is made by Tahisha CrawfordÂ with TLC.
The Pittsburgh-based designer and Brooklyn native has been knitting for seven years and launched her Lagelle accessories line in November 2007.
Tahisha’s inspiration? “Everything,” she says. Â ”But I find myself being inspired by vintage fashions.”
The 35-year-old took her line’s nameÂ from her mother’s maiden name Laguer. Â ”I credit my Mom for instilling in me a strong sense of personal style and my love for fashion.”
